The EDE 2 Course

Complete hands-on ultrasound education

Since 2016, the course is under a new format. EDE 2 is still a 2-day course. But “Day 1” consists of completing online modules which can be done at a time and place of your choosing in the weeks prior to the course. The modules are cutting-edge and very interactive. They allow participants to go through the material at their own pace, at a time of their own choosing, and as often as they like. The live part of the course lasts 1 day (“Day 2”) and consists mostly of scanning sessions, with brief mini-lectures to remind participants how to perform the various scans. The course manual is the book titled “Essentials of Point-of-Care Ultrasound”. The book combines the course manuals of EDE and EDE 2. Participants can choose the print or eBook version (available on iBooks only).

The Emergency Department Echo (“EDE”) 2 Course is an advanced point-of-care ultrasound course that will take the seasoned practitioner to the next level. EDE 2 has been created by a team of over a dozen editors, authors, and translators from across the country. Although it brings you new indications, EDE 2 retains the principles of the original EDE course: sticking to the essentials, an emphasis on learning image generation, and the straightforward and safe incorporation of EDE into clinical practice.
